We have sourced some fantastic certified Gluten Free Beer which has been requested by a few people and now it's available to order.
Having met these brewers personally and spent some time with them over the years and sampled at various beer festivals, not only do they provide great beer but are great people too and we're delighted to partner together to bring you this tantalising gluten free selection.
The initial selection includes the following cans from the fantastic Brass Castle Brewery:
2 x Bad Kitty (330ml can, 5.5%)
Robust fulsome dark porter, enhanced with vanilla.
A 5.5% chewy chocolate-vanilla dream of a porter. Bad Kitty earned its name from the antics of the two original brewhouse cats, who delight in mischievously supervising proceedings.
1 x Dark Web (440ml, 4.8%)
Our new 4.8% dry stout with a complex malt body offering chocolate and roasted coffee notes, a drying palate, lifted with citrus and pepper aroma through generous addition of Chinook & Columbus hops. Certified Gluten Free
1 x Disruptor (440ml can, 7.4%)
A devilishly drinkable 7.4% hazy New England IPA. Hopped with Mosaic, Simcoe, Ekuanot, and Citra for big fruit aroma and maximum juiciness. Certified Gluten Free
1 x Fruit Lupe (hop & fruit combo may vary) 440ml, 4.8%
The second offering in our range of 4.8% single-hop pale ales, matched up with fruit to complement the hop.
2 x Hoptical Illusion (330ml can, 4.3%)
A hop-forward American pale ale bursting with citrus, pine, and tropical fruit notes.
2 x Helles Lager (330ml can, 4.4%)
Munich-style lager. Unlike a pilsner, Munich lagers are malt forward with a gentle honey-like sweetness. Soft, easy drinking and refreshing. Certified Gluten Free SIBA National Champion Small Pack Lager 2017
1 x RhüBerlin (440ml, 3.5%)
We've married up the tartness of Yorkshire rhubarb with the acidity of a Berliner Weisse, resulting in a 3.5% fresh, thirst quenching delight. Certified Gluten Free
2 x Sunshine IPA (330ml can, 5.7%)
Sunshine IPA (330ml can, 5.7%) - India Pale Ale made in the traditional Yorkshire way, only with a pile of new world hops for fruity citrus bite.
To achieve certified gluten-free status Brass Castle Brewery use a Murphy & Son enzyme product called 'Brewers Clarex' - added in a tiny amount during fermentation. Marvellously, it contains an enzyme isolated from a self-cloned strain of the mould Aspergillus niger. Some breweries use it to reduce protein haze; but a lovely side-effect is a reduction in dissolved gluten. Their certified gluten-free beers are tested through Brewlab, Sunderland, using the competitive ELISA testing protocol.
